*Feeling Like A Hop*

hi there!
welcome to your next stop on the American Crafts Blog hop!

If you're coming here from  Leah Farquharson's blog...
you're in the RIGHT place!!
(If not...simply go back to the start - the American Crafts blog to see where to go)

This blog hop is brought to you today by the following theme:
my FAVORITE new American Crafts product:  Campy Trails!
 I ♥♥♥ everything in this's so cute!
What's funny is I'm SO NOT a "camp" girl. I HATE to camp.
Give me a hotel with outlets, air conditioning and a bathroom, please ;D
BUT give me EVERTHING from the Campy Line..I ♥ it so!

The colors are delicious, the entire line can be used for anything!
school, pets, the great outdoors, the great indoors, ANYTHING....
and what I like most about it is it isn't just a boy or a girl line...
you can use it for ANYONE.
I've got a layout I did right here of my boy -

TIps & Tricks: making this layout was SUPER easy....
I just picked some of my favorite papers & embellishments, chose my photo - then went to town creating....
I love cutting different borders using patterned papers,
as well as using embellishments as borders.
